What fuzz do you play the most these days?

Octophant. I come from the future.

 

 

I was playing with it on my breadboard last night. It is perty fun. I was about to box it up, but got lazy and will wait until I finish building everyone elses. I've been using a Harmonic Percolator/Wooly Mammoth combo pedal I built a lot.

how does the Percolator stack up with other dirts?

 

what schematics did you build it from?

I ran it into my Hot Cake and it sounded cool, not so much into the HM-2. Running into the Wooly Mammoth creates a {censored}ing massive bass tone.

 

I used the schematic based off of Albini's HP and then subbed a few different resistors in for some of the weirder values. I also experimented with different transistors and diodes. I think right now it has an NTE pnp Germ and a BC109, and then 1n34A's in an asymmetric clipping pattern. Stock it sounded fun with the 404 and all that, but I like my brew better. I also added a protection diode and power supply filtering as well as an internally switchable high-pass filter to make it even more abrasive.

sounds cool.

 

that's the Interfax one, right?

The two I've been using the most recently are the Frantone The Sweet and Dr. Scientist Frazz Dazzler. I've only recently bought both pedals, but I love them both. They both blend that fine line between Big Muff style smooth fuzz, but they just have a bit of unpredictability and wildness to them. Also, the gate switch on the Frazz is awesome, and it may be the quietest fuzz I've ever heard.

by the way, since i'm grinding my teeth in antecipation, does it work better into a dirty amp or into a clean amp?

 

 

Right now I'm using it into a ZT Lunchbox with the gain at about noon into a 2x10 cab. I've only tried this particular one into the ZT, but I imagine it would sound good into any clean to medium gain amp. Probably a bad idea to use it with a Mesa or anything like that.

:cry:
haven't played with a fuzz for 6 weeks
yesterday I was holding a PE Yardbox in my hands but was too lazy to put a battery in
last fuzz I used was the HWA Fuzzwork Orange
I'm cleaning out but am keeping the fuzz pedals

Definitely the MJM London Fuzz, I also use the London Fuzz II and the Reptile Fuzz but that's the one I use the most.

 

 

Mike is a cool guy, he lived around the corner from me 30 years ago. Huge Hendrix nut, had a Plexi stack in his bedroom.
